Africa's favorite trail run

The Oxpecker Trail Run is South Africa’s top 2-day trail running event that takes place in the central Drakensberg, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban.

We aim to be the most innovative trail running race in the world let alone South Africa. Come for a weekend of unbelievable trails, delicious food, pure fun and for the OXPECKER experience!

Trail Details

We are Ready. Are You?

With 8 years of OXPECKER experience we, as passionate trail runners ourselves, have found a trail we feel is the perfect balance between enjoyable and challenging.

Along the trail you can expect mostly flowing single and jeep track with such beautiful Drakensberg and bush veld views. The track is often wide enough to overtake or run alongside a friend.


Self Camping, Tents & Rooms

In order to give you the BEST sleep during your Oxpecker experience we have a range of canvas tents available to suit your camping vibe!

We also have permanent ablutions. Camping not your vibe? We also have rooms available.
